I need a way to clear the browser settings using a command line. I know for
IE 7 I can use commands below, but I need something similar for IE6 on a
Windows XP platform. Any help would be appreciated.

Temporary Internet Files
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 8
Cookies
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2
History
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 1
Form Data
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 16
Passwords
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 32
Delete All
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 255
Delete All - “Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons”
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 4351

Hi Samson,

Heres a post made on the IE7 NG

Hello wonder if anyone can help...
I manage a small windows domain with 200+ public access mahcines and i have
a sciprt that is invoked with user GPO that wipes data from IE 6 please see
small extract below...

del "%userprofile%\local settings\temporary internet files\*" /f /s /q
del "%userprofile%\local settings\history*" /f /s /q

this has been working fine to ensure that all the trash that is left day to
day is removed on reboot.

since IE7 has come along, Still on Windows XP these scripts don't seem to
work anymroe so much so that i have had to blocked the auto download of the
new browser.

we have no machines running vista yet so i know that the folder location is
the same.

Could anyone point me in the reight direction for tools, scripts etc that
work with I.E 7.

What would be usefull is knowing a way of invoking "Delete all" through
command line which is found in Internet control panel.

Many Thanks
Dave

Thanks Rob, I appreciate your post. I figured we would have to take that
route.
